Like English departments in most colleges and universities, the English Department at California State University, San Bernardino is devoted to the study of literature and language. The major in English consists of a common core and three tracks. The core provides background for more advanced courses, with offerings in English literature, American literature, noncanonical literature, as well as analysis of particular genres, literary theory, and introduction to linguistics.

The Literature Track offers courses focused on particular themes, genres, authors, topics, and periods. The Creative Writing Track gives students the opportunity to do extensive, sequenced work in poetry or fiction writing and exposes them to the writing of other genres. The Linguistic Track enables students to understand human language in its many facets: its history, its structure, its variation, its relationship with society and culture, and how it is acquired by children and adults.

The English Department also sponsors The Pacific Review, a literary journal mingling professional and student contributions. Work on this journal provides excellent training for students in editorial work.

As language and culture are understood best in a global context, the English Department encourages students to participate in the California State University's International Programs.
